What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"It is hard to keep from reading bits of this aloud to friends and relations. Groucho in letters is just as devastatingly witty as he was in the movies, to say nothing of other media."

Publishers Weekly

"...these letters are good reading, for out of the book Groucho emerges, eyebrows bounding, eyes rolling, cigar jauntily clamped between his teeth, the wisecracks coming a mile a minute. Even Calvin Coolidge might have smiled."

Book Week

"Written...with the impudence, irreverence and general lunacy that made Groucho the immortal wise guy of the American screen."

Newsweek

This is one of very few books that I have read that I actually laughed out loud at. Grouch's wit comes through even in this medium. His letters back and forth with Fred Allen were just great. There is humor in here for every taste. I was even shocked by the breadth of individuals that Groucho had as pen pals: Everyone from Harry Truman to T.S. Eliot. Every letter in here has some bit of Groucho's trademark humor. I was surprised by the relative lack of correspondence in the book between Groucho and his equally famous siblings though.
